Autumn Harvest Unity Challenge

Friends with Flair Friday and Unity Challenge: It's Friday; I guess I should be happy about that becuase my husband will be off work tomorrow and that means he can help me clean. Hahahaha (So evil). I kind of am cheeting this week by putting in a blog post for two things: Friends with Flair and the Unity Challeng -- well, not really cheating, but I usually don't make one blog post for more then one challenge.

For this week's Friends with Flair and the Unity Challenge, I made something different then a card. I made a toilet paper candy holder. That's right, you did read that right! I used a toiled paper roll and bent the edges down to make a "pillow". I flattened it a bit more with my hand so I had a workable surface and then painted it with deep orange paint. I added my leaves and a ribbon to make it look lovely, and ALL DONE!

Please remember to stop by my blog this week (October 31st - November 4th) because I am a Growing In Unity Girl all that week and if you comment on the blog, you might be the super lucky one to win a prize from Unity. I can't wait for you to see what I've made for the blog. Thank you so very much for stopping by and viewing my "candy holder"
